Black Orchid is a superhero and an ally of the Super Friends.

Background Information

Although she has a number of superpowers (Superman type powers) her main ability is a mastery of disguise. She often spends an entire investigation (Batman type skills) impersonating an insignificant background female, such as a maid, a secretary, someone's girlfriend, et cetera, and the other characters only discover her involvement at the end of the story upon finding the bound and gagged woman she impersonated, and an abandoned disguise with her calling card, a black orchid.
